I was so excited about this book.
Many of my childhood memories are of playing cards with my family.
I loved playing but I've forgotten most of the games we used to play.
It's something that I wanted to start doing with Little Red
now he is getting older.
Hubby also likes playing cards so I am sure we are going
to be using this book lots.

I think playing cards is a fantastic way to bring different generations
together to have fun.
At my mum and dad's we used to have 3 or 4 generations playing
and loads of extended family.

We even started a games evening where neighbours
used to come round and make an evening of it.

the book is separated into different sections.
  1. For The Family with very young children
  2. The war family
  3. The authors family
  4. The stops family
  5. The casino family
  6. The rummy family
  7. Trump games
  8. The whist family
  9. The hearts family
  10. Solitaire games
  11. What the terms mean
  12. Index
Each card game is broken down:
The Deal
To Win the game
The play

The book is really easy to understand. 
As it keeps everything in the same format
it's easy to follow and understand each game.
I'm sure there are tons of games you'll see and remember.
There is soooo much enjoyment for all the family!
And don't worry if you are on your own
they even have solitaire games.

I think this would make a brilliant present for Christmas.
I'm sure it would make a fun afternoon for all the family!

This is a book that we will be using for years to come.
As Little Red grows up we'll be playing more and more of the games with him.

It's great fun!

I received a copy of the book to review.
However all opinions expressed are my own.
No monies were received for this post.
